Banana Ice Cream
 
Recipes from The Secrets of Baking by Sherry Yard
Notes: I made a full recipe of the Banana Schmutz as directed and combined that with a half recipe of the Vanilla Ice Cream so that it would fit in my ice cream maker. The schmutz was slightly overcooked as the brown sugar made it hard to tell when to take the pan off heat. I omitted the vanilla seeds from the custard base (and used a bit of extract), as I didn't want anything to distract from the banana flavour. And what flavour! Real, ripe bananas that have been caramelized give this ice cream an intensity I've never experienced before. It came out quite soft though, like frozen pudding, even after packing overnight. Even if I had a larger canister, I don't think I would make the recipe as directed (using a full recipe of vanilla custard) as it would dilute the banana flavour. This one is a keeper.
